Upper Body Exercises

Recently, came to Fitness Quest 10 for a video shoot to see how trainers from one of America’s Top 10 Gyms (Men’s Health Magazine), trains their athletes.  For the next several issues of the TD Times we will show you different exercises we use to prepare our athletes to perform at the highest level.

August is a time when summer is coming to an end, school is right around the corner, and football is less then a month away.  But, August is also a time when the MLB season is coming down to the wire.  Here are two great videos for all baseball players out there who want to stay injury free and maximize their performance.

Todd demonstrates two great series of exercises, with two of his favorite pieces of equipment.  In the first video, Todd uses the TRX to demonstrate some great upper body exercises that baseball players can use to gain an edge on the diamond.

In the second clip, Todd uses the BOSU to build shoulder and upper body strength.  You might think that the BOSU is just used for working your core, but it is a great way to develop your upper body.  Here is a great upper body circuit that will help improve performance and keep young players injury free.
